Black Widow Ultimate Problems

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So I bought myself a Razer Black Widow Ultimate, plug it in and the space bar is hitting either or both the alt keys 7/10 times I press it down, so needless to say after an hour of it being out the box im putting it back and getting it returned.

I heard all the warnings about Razer keyboards but bit the bullet, guess it goes to show they really are bad, I mean they couldnt even get a simple thing like this correct and im unhappy, wont be buying keyboards from them again.

Now I have a question, which mechanical keyboard should I go for now? I dont really need the macro keys just wanted them anyway, so not important but I game mostly.

If not mechanical any other good keyboards anyone can suggest? I was looking at logitech (I know they aren't mechanical and i'd prefer one) but I dont care for the screens.

I had the same issue and fixed it with some lithium grease. However, it does void your warranty if they find out.

In case you're having second thoughts about ditching it, here's the thread where this is discussed.

You do know that razer would have replaced the keyboard anyway if it was defective. Razer provides a warranty on their products for free. So your replacement plan was a waste of money.

On topic though if you want a nice mechanical gaming board take a look at the Steelseries 7G, or get a Das.

I have the blackwiddow regular and I am totally happy with it! If you don't want the razer I would get a Deck or a Das. they are both extremely high quality and they are around the same price as the blackwiddow

Nope no waste here i retured the razer keyboard and used the cash towards a logitech keyboard. razer would have only returned it for the same keyboard or another razer product i think.

I think it's the smaller gauge wire they use on the stabilizers. Filcos are better.
